There’s a lot of great music out there in area bars and clubs that is created by our very own musicians. Whether you dig the cover bands or original tunes, there’s plenty to enjoy so get out there and support our scene. The Buffalo Nite-Life Music and Club Awards does just that by honoring the musicians and the area’s live music clubs.

The 2012 edition of the event will present more than 65 awards at 8 p.m. Wednesday in the Cove Nightclub (4701 Transit Road, Depew). Special presentation awards will go to Frank Michaels from the Music Agency, Paul Musilli from Buffalo Drum Outlet and Dwayne Hall from the Sportsmen’s Tavern.

Live music will be performed by Caitlin Koch & the Jamie Moses Band, Breakaway, E.L.I. (Three Dog Night), Strictly Hip, J.J. Swing and Widow Maker.

The 21-and-over event is open to the public. Admission is $5. For info, call 656-7946.
